Won’t be long until we have all the details. I’ll wait until later in the year or next year before I start seriously looking at this car, as BMW will be offering deals by then.

I personally do NOT like the extremely hard to clean metallic silver painted with soft clear-coat rims, they look cheap. And what BMW is doing now regarding the black wheels that are using is a shiny Glossy finish which looks absolutely super cheap, like someone just took a can of spray paint to them. They have to be Black Satin Powder Coated. For me I like my wheels Black, but in silver they need to be polished. A nice dark Gunmetal works.

Yes you are correct on that one. I hope they made a last-minute change. These are the BMW X5M Rims. The ones pictured here looks very similar to the ones on that very crappy grainy Facebook teaser video.

We soon shall see...

Camo still concealing a lot as expected, but share mainly to show the clean underbelly, a bit better idea of the diffuser and a rough idea of the rear tire widths...

Another way to de value the X5, X6

C'mon BMW where is the exclusivity of the M car/Experience?

Just another way to devalue those that pay higher for higher platforms. Example look what the value of an M4 Competition is worth from 6 months ago when purchased brand new. $175K AUD new now 2 nd hand in dealerships with 6,000kms @ $ 135k

IMHO the competition series are way underwhelming and over priced. It would be incredibly hard for me to spend more than $100K on a BMW because that's getting dangerously close to super car territory

What supercar is around $100k?

I wouldn't mind spending a $100k on a BMW and I have. I've even spent that on a Nissan. There's a dearth of good cars in the $125k range and that's where BMW is trying to slot into. I don't consider a standard 911 a supercar either.

If we are talking SAVs (approximate base prices and in USD), I will wait until the full reveal to determine if it's underwhelming or not but IMO, supercar territory starts at @$300K and hypercars at @$700K and up. I would consider the Lamborghini Urus a superSAV and that's with a starting price of @$230K. If you could spend @$100K on a superSAV, which one would you buy instead?

Here's a list of superSAVs (all in USD) that I would consider super! I included BMW, Tesla, Volvo and Mercedes for price comparison. The Volvo would be the closest to @$100K. Everything else is under. It's possible I missed something or made an error. I'm sure I'm not the only one looking lol.

Volvo XC90 T8 eAWD: $104,900
BMW X5 M: $109,700
Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S: $111,860
BMW X6 M: $114,700
Levante GTS: $119,980
Mercedes-AMG GLS 63: $136,200
Tesla Model X P100D: $140,000
Levante Trofeo: $169,980
Porsche Cayenne Turbo S: $182,600
Mercedes-AMG G65: $222,700
Lamborghini Urus: $232,000
Mercedes-Benz AMG G 65: $252,000
Range Rover SVAutobiography: $270,000
Bentley Bentayga Black Edition: $390,000
Rolls Royce Cullinan: $425,000

A fully loaded X3M CP at @$85K-$90K sounds pretty good to me! All IMO of course

You can get a used Mclaren MP4-12C in the 100-125K range, with the 570's following not too far behind. So I guess that's just where my head is at. I'm just saying that once price creeps passed 100K I'd personally rather have a used McLaren and then maybe an X4 for the daily driver. In a perfect world haha.

Lol M's are not exclusive by any stretch of the imagination. In the US, I bet the majority are leases. Just look at the CS. Initially wasn't available to lease now they're being discounted $10k+ and available to lease.
